    Our lovestory: it all started far back to when i was a student of pathfinder international nursey and primary school (now lutron junior academy) i join the school in primary 3,as a new student my fellow old student gist me about a male teacher that can flog very well which i never met till i got to primary 5 cos he happen to be the class teacher(he was the most handsome male teacher then not only him been student crush but also every single female teacher idle men) but things were different for me cos he beat me too much if i did anything wrong. Fast track to my senior year in school( i attended my primary school secondary school) my primary 5 teacher was now transfer to my secondary school as my english and music teacher(during my junior secondary school) and my english and economics teacher( during my senior secondary school) i stil didnt like him cos he know how to beat most among all male teacher. Then an evil incident happen he lost his mother that was the first thing that brough us close(he was a mommy boy) since he was every student sweet heart cos of his look and voice(he sing well) we also felt his pain i only dislike cos of the beating bt deep down me i knw he was my crush we now grew closer when i begin to lost attention in class and my grade was dropping( due to family crisis) that was how he bcame my advicer and confidant. In the year 2009 i wrote my waec and he decided to celebrate out of secondary for me we went to the beach with his friends and there girlfriend that was when he ask me to be his girlfriend( his an old fashion person) that was how our dating story started year 2010 i got admission went to school and we started having issues cos of the distance and age differences(10years) so we became on and off till 2014 we decided to let go,i dated few other guys but i keep comparing him and them which didnt make the relationship workout fast track to my birthday in 2015 he called me to wish me happy birthday i was shock to recieve his call cos it was over a year we talk he greeted me nd i return the call the follow day that was how we started talking again but decided to take it slow and get to know each other better. We started from friendship to dating and in the year 2017 august 21 he pop the big question “will you marry me” and i said “yes” @ ikeja city mall in the presence of my sister,cousins and his bestfriend i was expecting a proposal but didnt suspect it was going to be that day or that location( that day was my dad remembrace) our introduction set for next month and wedding early next year.

    My name is Oluwatoyin, I met Oluwatosin during NYSC both of us were out-going corpers… precisely during our POP practice. he’d approached me where I was quietly sitted waiting for all ativities to come to an end to ask of what was going on because he was late to the parade ground. I could not help but fix my eyes on a cute, clean corper. am so sure he was seeing the same because he took a shot of me with his camera.
    We became just friends despite the all the mushy mushy dramas that happened the day we met…though, we became gist partners because a day won’t go without we talking despite our different locations.
    Our relationship got to the next level on phone, but that did not stopped me from requesting that he ask me properly when we see, which he did on his knees with my friend as witness. Though, it wasn’t with a ring sha, but i never mind, knowing that we weren’t trying out, I knew he is my husband. Yeah, I KNEW.
    Oluwatosin is loving, caring, supportive, and above all, the only person that seems to understand me…even my craziness is my left out…lol
    And you know what?….we are walking down the aisle on the 11th November, 2017……..I am the happiest bride-to-be, we are the happiest couple-to-be, come November 11th, I will be so glad to change my surname to MRS FAT……. when we will start our forever together.

    My name is Kwaghmimi Ianna and my fiance is Dominic Iortyer. We are both from Benue state and I would love to share my love/proposal story with you. I met my fiance when I was in university in 2009.we just greet ourselves a couple of times little did I know that Dominic had mad crush on me and he was always peeping at me anytime I went to read my books in class. I lost touch with him when he graduated because he was two years ahead in school. Fast-forward to last year June he added me on Facebook through a mutual friend we share but we kept minding our business because we were in our various relationships… By November I got heartbroken and it was Dominic that was my shoulder to cry on he was so patient with me until January this year, I got so fond of him but I was scared of dating Dominic because he is someone I could talk about anything with, what if the relationship wouldn’t work out. I didn’t know Dominic had a better plan for us and in February Dominic asked me to marry him and I accepted by March he met my parents and told them his intentions. He was so nervous that day. I couldn’t help but laugh at him all day. By April we had our introduction and we are getting married on 2nd of December 2017.thats the end….

    My fiancé and I met through his cousin. It was more of a lets just see how this goes. He knew what he wanted right from our very first date, he had suggested we go karting as he wanted to create memories because we were not living in the same cities at the time. I was surprised like what kind of naija guy wants to create memories already. He had asked me to be his girlfriend about two months earlier and I was just making shakara, after the karting experience with a lot of butterflies that had appeared in my tummy because I had fallen in love with his personality, I happily agreed to be his girlfriend.our relationship has indeed been a memorable one,the kind of memories that flash through my mind at work and I just smile sheepishly, we feel at peace around each other and it’s so unbelievable because we both had given up on ever finding this sort of amazing love.
    Fast forward to a year later,he asked me if it was ok for his colleague/ friend to have a get-together at his house, obviously I agreed. The next Saturday he said – oh babe,that get-together I told you about is tomorrow . On Sunday July 23rd, he had upset me earlier in the day(purposely I guess) and I was planning on exempting myself from the party,however we got to the house and I had to help clean up & arrange,not knowing I was cleaning and arranging for my own proposal?. Now my close friend was coming into town and she said it was for visa purpose, she met me up where I was and we got dressed, even helped her with her contour ?.she kept on coming upstairs to check if I was ready not knowing by this time guests had already arrived .i got downstairs and my boyfriend started introducing me to some friends I had not seen before and I didn’t realize Jason derulo’s – MARRY ME was playing in the background ,by the time I was done hugging the last person and turned around- Wow,there he was on his knees asking me to marry him. I almost ran into the wall screaming ????. I said yes. I give him thumbs up for pulling this proposal off without me suspecting a thing, because whenever he’s trying to hide something,I’m already ten steps ahead so he won me on this one.
    Our wedding is on December 9th,2017 which happens to be his birthday.?

    Hi, I’m Fola,
    So I met my fiance on twitter actually through a friend about 5 years ago. At first we were just friends and I never thought anything serious would come out of our friendship. He came out to me about how he adores would like for us to date. At that time, I was seeing someone that eventually broke my heart. To cut the long story short, I agreed to give him a try which turned out the best decision I ever made.
    .
    On the 4th of September 2016, which was his birthday, we went out to lekki leisure lake where we had a huge fight about the beach bike I almost drove into the ocean (wanted to try out my driving skills as i was just learning how to drive at that time). We left lekki leisure lake frowning at each other to shaunz lounge bar with the excuses he wanted to pick up something from a friend that was supposed to meet him there. We got there and settled in, did some karaoke, I did the song “it was always you” by maroon 5 which turned out to be the perfect song, It was his turn and he grabbed the mic and started saying all sort of sweet amazing things, I was too shy ehn! He popped the question right on that spot and “Yes” was what I said.

    Our wedding date is 10/22/2018

    I met my Fiancé in 2013 at church. He is this “bad ass” lead guitarist that looks like Nicolas cage. For real he rarely smiles. You hardly see him mingling with people. I thought he was weird (But he so cute). We have a mutual friend and I said to the friend “that guy is weird”. A few weeks later after church, I went to say hi to our friend before leaving and uncle was sitted there. Next thing our friend goes “ehnehn she says you are a weird”… I felt like the ground should open for me to enter ( I almost died). Next thing I knew, bros busted into laughter (boy that laugh did me in…). I had this shocked look and I’m like “so you laugh??”. He just kept laughing. 🙂 Later that evening, he had got my pin and we got talking. Fast forward to end of 2015 and uncle started dropping subtle hints (truth be told, I’ve had a mad crush on him since before we even got talking and that crush never died). He asked me out consistently from January 2016 and my shakara was the highest. At one point I was seriously telling him off on my phone in my mum’s presence that my mum had to tell me to take it easy on the young man. We started in February 2016, precisely on my yonger brother’s birthday.
    Let’s take it to March 2017, he had travelled to Ughelli for his friend’s marriage and came back that sunday. I was off work so I spent the night at his catching up on all the gist from the wedding. The next day, March 27 was my older brother’s birthday. I was lying on the bed thinking ’bout how I was yet to call my big bro and wish him a happy birthday. Bae and I were gisting and I was telling him to get ready for work while we’re listening to @edsheeran “perfect” on repeat.. Then he goes “So if I say let’s get married will you agree” and I go “of course I will, why won’t I” I was pressing my phone trying to call my brother…. Next thing he turns me around to face him and he goes “I’m gonna put this ring on your finger now and I hope you’ll still want to marry me” ?????? .. I didn’t see that coming..
    At first it was shock, like I couldn’t fathom all the emotions but one thing was certain, I felt this surge of peace and gratitude and then I knew I have found my peace and happiness 🙂
    So yeah, come December 23, 2017 I am getting married to by other half by God’s grace. I am getting married to the one who complete me.
    December 23, 2017 is #MeetTheRaiwes2017
    My bae @chrisraiwe and myself @jema_kozi will be saying “I do” forever…… *dancing*

    My name is Nehita Eguakhide aka barbie ( i love makeup lol). My fiancé and I attended same University, both Engineers but that was about it. We didnt even say hi except for when he crashed my birthday party in 2010.. lol

    His flatmate (a mutual friend of ours) had been talking to me about him but for some reason i felt it was all a joke (guys can be cray sometimes).

    I was on my LinkedIn page in 2014 and who pops up as suggested connection, Oga. Lol. I sent him a simple hello and his response was hilarious. He goes “Today must be my lucky day”. We exchanged numbers and kept it simple from then. He had to go for his masters degree so that was it.

    We kept in touch and fast became super fond of each other even tho he was doing his own thing and i was doing mine. Fastforward to Jan 28th, 2015, we made it official.

    Now for the proposal, it was xmas and work had been crazy but i just had to make out time to see Oga cause we hadn’t seen for almost a year. Last i saw him was May,2015 (yes we were in a long distance relationship).

    It was the day before xmas, i flew out of Nigeria to Yankee for the xmas holidays, perfect time to Netflix and chill “wink” .. lol. I knew the relationship was headed somewhere cause we had had serious conversations prior to my trip but i didnt just know any of his plans. Idi can be soooo chilled and laid back though he likes to term it “easy going”. We had visited so many places and each time i am like what if he pops the question, then i start adjusting my hair and making sure my makeup is on fleek but all na for show, nothing happened lol.

    We were home on the 28th of December, i was still in bed and Oga got up to get something in the dark. I mean this was early hours in the morning and there was barely any light ray. I heard a loud bang and i jumped up thinking he had hurt himself badly. I rushed to him only to find him holding his knees, i was already scared. Just for me to turn around to see what i could get to relive him of his pain (i always have something for something, mobile pharmacist lol). He pulled me and he was on his knees. I started laughing cause I thought this was a proper joke. He can be soooo dramatic at times especially when he is singing and acting the lyrics with his frog voice ( lol i love you still baby).

    He said soooo many things with tears in his eyes and all i kept saying was no babes are you serious right now. Like i was legit in my pjs, satin hair bonnet ( he hates the life outa that shit lol) and no slay but Oga felt that was the best time to pop the question when i was in my natural element.

    Then he gave me the ring. He knows i am a gold freak and i love pink but then the ring was silver. I am like Okkkk.. all that matters is i get to spend the rest of my awesome life with this amazing man. Then he drags me again, takes it off and gives me the prettiest diamond ring i have ever seen (oh shit i just sounded so cliché lol).

    Ok the ring was really pretty and i loved it alot and now i cant wait to create more awesome memories with this amazing being.

    OUR LOVE AND PROPOSAL STORY

    OUR LOVE STORY:
    Ayokanmi and I met in Church @Harvesters International Christian Centre. I was relatively new in church and around that time, The church had commenced its quarterly spiritual development and growth course (HSDC) and I decided to attend. He was one of the facilitators, a very funny one at that so he caught my attention, Although, I honestly thought he was married.
    Coincidentally, we kept bumping into each other after the first day we spoke, said hello occasionally and made small talk after Classes.

    My birthday was around the corner and he overheard me remind a friend of my birthday. He got my phone number from a friend and called to wish me a happy birthday and that is how our love story began.

    OUR PROPOSAL STORY.
    I cried like a baby!!! It seemed like a dream, but this was no dream. That day started like every other day except for the fact that 3 days before bae had insisted that we had to attend his friend’s wedding after which we would head to the Island to attend our marriage counseling. Initially, I didn’t want to attend the wedding but later accepted to go with him, not knowing it was just part of a bigger ploy to get me dressed and made up for what was to be one of the happiest days of my life. After the wedding reception at Ikeja ( A reception I left without eating or drinking anything just because we couldn’t be late for the so called counseling) anyways it was worth the while. Fast forward a little, I find out that the venue for the counseling was Eko Hotel and Suites (@Red chinese restaurant).
    I know what you are thinking, that it should have been obvious to me that something was cooking. Well trust me, if you know BAE, you wouldn’t suspect a thing at all.
    Fast forward, our supposed counselor didn’t show up for over an hour and when she finally showed up, my baby said he had to go get her. A few minutes later our friends started walking in one after another with roses and love notes until he came in and proposed. This was reality, my reality.

    It’s been exactly 2 years, 24 months, 104 weeks, 730 days, 17,520 hours, 1,051,200 minutes and 63,070,000 seconds with you and sweetheart, what an experience it has been.
    It’s funny that when I first saved your phone number, I saved your name as ” ko mi” instead of “Kanmi” . It was sheer coincidence as I honestly thought that was the spelling of your name. Little did I know that I was walking into destiny and foretelling my future.
    I called you my husband even before I knew you.
    It’s been amazing with you @ayokanmielegbede
    It’s been two years of happiness, love, understanding, sacrifice and total commitment. Even the seemingly “stressful” times was worth every bit.

    On the 5th of August, 2017, my best friend asked me to be his wife and I said YES!!!
    Thank you “hubstar to be”, my love, my happiness, my sweetheart, my Ko’ mi, my forever in a bit, for being who you are and for being wise enough to see virtue and never letting her go.
    I am the luckiest girl in the world and you are the most blessed man on earth, courtesy of me. Lol.
    I love you Always and Forever.

    Sometime in October, 2012 a friend invited me to a wedding of his younger sister, i graced the occasion and on seeing this beautiful damsel who was the Chief Bridesmaid of the Bride, i fell for her without no doubt. I approached her but she shut me up and blew me off just before i could get her name. First time i was approaching a lady at first sight. I asked her friends siblings about her name and went searching for her on facebook. I finally got her 5 months later. Sent her a request, she accepted, we became friends literally. After been friends for a couple of months, i traveled to Makurdi from Abuja to meet with her. We did meet in an eatery, we spoke, had lunch and i walked her home. Asked her to be my girlfriend 2 months later, she accepted. after dating for over 2 years plus, i took her and her younger sister out for dinner on 19th of April 2016. After dinner, i got down on one knee and asked her to marry me, she cried, grabbed me and kissed me and said YES. We are getting married on the 2nd of December, 2017. She is the best thing that has happened to me and i want to give her a Royal treatment and life. I hope you pick us. Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi, am Lisa Okodhi. My love story started this year, March precisely. His name is Prince. He saw me earlier in 2015 but didn’t have​ the guts to come talk to me. I was a neighbour to his best friend David, and all efforts to get my contact from David proved abortive.
    David told him that I was of a different class, simply because I had a very good job, a car and a neat apartment and Prince was a regular business hustler. Prince never gave up as everyday, he would visit David after work just to sight me from afar, or see if he could get my cell number.
    Soon afterwards, I changed houses and he soon started loosing hope.
    After two failed relationships between 2015 till 2017, Prince invited David out for a drink and suddenly asked after me. David was both shocked and amused. He asked Prince why he was still interested in me after two solid years.
    Prince said it in a nutshell. ‘SHE IS MY WIFE AND I DON’T WANT TO MISS HER’.
    David had no other choice but to give out my number in a hurry. There and then, Prince called for a meeting with me. I hesitantly obliged and we fixed a day to see.

    My first glimpse of him didn’t cause my heart to flip. Instead I was of the opinion that it would never work since he obviously wasn’t what I wanted but as God would have it, he kept in touch and slowly I started falling.
    I would lay awake waiting for his regular calls and chats and hear him complain about Lagos stress.
    He proposed on my birthday, July 6th..barely 4 months of dating. He came to pick me after work at 7pm. I put up a fight since I was too tired with work and already had a small party in the office. ‘am fine,’ I kept saying. ‘I don’t need another celebration’.
    Prince was upset at this behaviour and we started arguing and quarrelling. He insisted I must go, so I changed my clothes and angrily followed him outside.
    His friends were in the car all this time and I forced a smile despite my rage. We all drove to sea small hang out karaoke bar to relax but even there, we kept quarrelling and I threatened to leave.
    We later resolved our issues and before I knew what was happening, the Dj changed the music and I saw my love kneel before me with a ring. I was dumbfounded.
    ‘Lisa, be my wife’ he said. ‘I need you’.
    With tears and people clapping, I hugged him and said yes…
    Our wedding is slated for Dec 30th.
    Would really love this amazing opportunity.

    Met my fiancé November 2013 when i went to ibadan to process my HND admission, we boarded same bus from town to campus and he was sitting next to me so i asked him for the department i was going to and that was how we exchange number….. Down to feb 30 2014 he asked me out but i told him i was in a serious relationship then but he wont just let me be… Fast forward to july 5 2014 i accepted to date him and so we began the journey till September 2015 when we had a serious issue that led to a serious fight that separated us for 6months but as God ill have it February 18 2016 he just gave a surprise visit in school and that was how we settled our differences, January 8 2017 which happen to be my birthday was the day he popped the question which i said YES to….. March 2018 is the begining of our journey to forever…

    Our love story:

    My name is Yetunde and my fiancé Name is Olawale. I met him on IG through his church friend who’s also a celebrity (a lady). She inspires me by what she does and her ability to combine work, lifestyle, fashion & spirituality. So she posted one of their church event pictures of which my fiancé is included. I commented and that’s how it all started…

    I saw the picture and it got me intigued to ask who is this “HANDSOME guy…” Oh lawd my fiance fine nurr be small. lol ? Few moment later someone (a social media influencer) responded by tagging his IG handle and made a comment “Na so you don see wife be dat ooo… sha send us the invite when it happens” and he responded “we will when the time comes” we have not spoken to each other as at this time.

    Interestingly, he saw my comment and responded too.

    Shey me I kuku don’t know how this IG really works. Unknowingly, he had DMed me for over a week until a day when I checked my inbox. I saw his message asking for my mobile number. Awww ?I was flabbergasted. I sent it to him sharp sharp. *covering eyes* right now. He called almost immediately.

    After much chitchats and phone calls of about a months or so, we agreed to hookup and we did. We hung out a couple of time.

    Luckily for both of us also we attend 2 different churches that’s directly opposite each other inside Lekki Phase1. This contributed to speedy bonding of seeing each other almost every Sunday.

    He later told me he knew what he wanted right from our 1st date. Fast forward to 8months later he asked me to marry him. He did it in a very romantic way, on my birthday, in a place I love hanging out the most. So that gave me no clue as I thought it will just be me hanging out with friends and colleagues for my birthday.

    He reminds me with gifts every 5th day of every months to celebrate the date I agreed to date him which he also planned our Introduction to fall-on, the 9th month.

    He makes me experience love I have never seen before. He loves me and I love him so dearly too?.

    Oh my… I will be getting married to my prince charming on his birthday next Year. Saturday, March 10th, 2018

    Hmmm, throat cleared. This is actually nerve racking (a lot like when I proposed) Where should I start from….lets start from the beginning; I promise it doesn’t get boring.

    The Beginning

    It all started in 2014 when I was a 400level student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba (AAUA) in the department of Educational Management. I was organizing an event themed “Cased14Closed” which was like a graduation party for all the final year students in my school. I wasn’t the type that had lots of friends but I had to organize an event so by force by fire I had to get some. The best way I knew how to get people was by forming an organizing committee of 6 people. I created a group on my blackberry messenger (BBM) (we all did that one time or the other; didn’t we?) and requested that all my committee members should add all their friends that are students of (AAUA) which they did.
    Hmmm…….this gist is getting to the good part, In early 2015, I started a chat with one of the contacts that was randomly added to the group meant for “Case14Closed” in 2014;
    the person was none other than Ogundeyi Omotola Grace –the most beautiful, inspiring, naughty, childish, motherly, caring (Abeg let me gush about her) lady I have ever known. We talked a lot about business, shared ideas, it seemed like we had the same kind of ideas and plans but we were both in separate relationships and I knew she digged me *wink*. We lost contacts twice before we finally reconnected in April 2016(my year of GRACE ‘notice what I did there’). I wasn’t in a relationship and she was going through very serious emotional trauma at that time (sorry babe I had to dish).
    So we talked a lot, chatted, shared tough and touching memories we’ve pulled through. I started liking her more and getting used to sharing every of my free period with her. I stylishly asked if she won’t mind being my girlfriend but you know ladies…… It took her a long time and cost me a lot of talking as in a whole lot of begging…gosh… but finally she said yes on June 12, 2016, which happened to be on a Sunday; a glorious Sunday indeed.
    Oh! That reminds me, while the whole chatting and talking and begging was going on, we had never met it person. All we had to show for our relationship was phone calls, chats and pictures of us on social media. Our first meeting was on June 14, 2016, which happens to be the 2nd day after she accepted to be my girlfriend. Damn! I was nervous, I’m pretty sure I changed my shirt upto four times.
    I was very nervous because we all know pictures can be very deceiving. I didn’t know if who I saw online was going to be the same person I will meet, maybe less or more than my expectations. The moment I was waiting for finally came, I finally met her in all her glory, regal, graceful, and more beautiful that I could ever imagine. We spent the day gisting, laughing and playing like we have known each other for years. And that day sprang into a beautiful relationship for 4 months until life got in the way.

    The Break Up

    This part gets a little bit gloomy. Individual differences started to set in we were just 4 months into our relationship and things got really tensed up that she had to break up with me. It was so painful; I became lonely and had to keep myself very occupied with work so I won’t have to think about it much but guess what? “It didn’t work” I tried not to chat with her or even check her profile but I could not help it not until I saw she used a guy’s picture as her display picture on whatsapp. I just concluded she had moved on and I should also do the same.
    I moved on alright but it didn’t work out. I was so close to getting married to someone else completely, someone I barely knew – when reality set in that this wasn’t the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

    The Making Up

    I was getting used to the idea of being alone when my angel walked back into my life. Omotola chatted me up on that fateful day asking me if I could do a graphic design for her and I obliged (Pretty sure she wanted me back). We got talking again and then we realized we were still in love with each other; after just few days I realized that she has always been the one for me, the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. We began our love story again and I swore to myself I was never letting go ever again; what better way than to put a ring on it.

    The Proposal

    December 9 was her birthday and it was on a Friday, She was in school (AAUA) and I was at work (Lagos). We agreed that there will be no sort of celebration and I will probably make it up to her some other time. On Thursday, 8th December 2016, which was a day before her birthday, I got a day off work for the Friday, 9th December 2016 off. I didn’t tell her and decided why not surprise her with a big surprise and then a bigger surprise. I chatted her roommate to help me get someone who can bake a cake for her on my behalf to give her in school and I need it ASAP. The cake would also be inscribed in ‘will you marry me’.
    She is a sucker for bags so I decided to get her a bag as gift, which was part of my proposal pitch. On her birthday I called to wish her ‘a happy birthday and asked her to make a wish. She said she wished that I could bring her chicken n chips with ice cream (she is a foodie). I am no genie but I was determined to make her wish come through; I got to Akungba and made a stop at Chicken Republic, called her friend to meet me there who came along with the cake. She was in school so I had to wait in her neighbour’s room. When she got back, she had a sour look on her face, apparently she had not enjoyed her day at all.
    She was laying on the bed when I walked in and I said “Good afternoon, you wished for chicken and chip with ice cream and your wish has been granted”(I’m Mr smooth), when she looked up, she saw me and burst into tears, I told her “Happy birthday love”. I said, “This is your first birthday you will have celebrating having me as your boyfriend and I cant afford not to make it a special one for you.” I then gave her the bag I bought for her and told her to check inside (It was like hunting for treasure). When she opened the bag, she saw a note that says, “I can make your wish come true but firstly, you will have to find me.
    I am inside the smallest part of me”…… She searched inside and saw a smaller purse, when she opened the purse, she saw another paper that say, oops… “I’m not here but look around, you will find me in a carton box strange in your room”, when she looked around, she saw the cake box covered and when she open it, she saw a cake with “will you marry me” written on it…by the time she turned back, I was already on my kneel and I popped up the question with my lips trembling, voice breaking, hands shaking and my eyes clouded, I brought out the ring and I said “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” she nodded her head to say yes. Wedding date DECEMBER 09, 2017. Thank you @miz_bimbz for the tag, to my lovely, caring, most beautiful, hardworking, and one of the strongest lady I have ever known @lannyreal, I’ll forever love you and Thank you @bellanaijaweddings for this.

    So it’s was in June, during the sallah holiday boo decided to come to lagos from portharcourt to spend the holiday with me, we had a plan before he came he was to come straight to my house from the airport before visiting friends, but no he didn’t. I had prepared special meal for him so I didn’t want him to eat else where before coming so I was really mad at him for not keeping to our plan so when he came later in the night I just couldn’t imagine opening the door for him cos I felt he chosed his friends over me so I told him to go back to where he was coming from not minding his friend was with him. Meanwhile I didn’t know he had plans all along. The next morning he called and came to my house again of course I opened the door for him cos I missed him already we spoke and settled and we were together all day and night.
    Next day he told me we would be hanging out with friends and I gladly accepted. I dressed up to go out and he invited my friends too, we went to the beach on reaching there I noticed boo was just all over the place and I was wondering why he won’t just sit down one place before I knew it he was all glued to his friends and I said to my friend “it’s like the guy likes punishment o??? why won’t he just give me a little attention ‘ so after a while he started talking and gisting with me, while we were talking just before the sunset? one of the horse riders at the beach called my attention he was like” please I want you to take a picture with my horse'” huh? I turned to my friend and said see this guy o does he think I’m a child? Am I a jjc? Do you think I came to famz with horses in the beach? You needed to have seen my face before I knew it he” horse rider” Brough to out a small box from his pocket and presented it to me I just gave a long hiss and turned to boo to complain… BOOM!! ???I saw my baby on his knee asking me to marry him and of course I said YES, hugged and gave him a long kiss???The rest of our nigh to was too beautiful
    Fast forward to September we’re planning our wedding, we’ll be traditionally married on the 29th of December and the church wedding will be. next year towards Easter holiday. Thanks BN for giving me a platform to share my proposal story I only pray we get picked.

    The saying “Love at first sight” really do exist.. 11th Oct 2016 was wen it all started. All Dressed in my lil Black dress, no make-up on and slippers to go get some items at the market, I decided to go see my elder sister who was admitted at d clinic, on getting to the reception the first person I sighted was this Dark cute guy chatting with sum nurses, so I asked where I Could locate their ward, immediately he pointed towards the direction, few minutes later, the same guy came into her room (he obviously traced d room the fine girl entered *his later confession*) asking her how she was feeling with a cute smile on his face, that was when I knew he was her Doctor, and den he looked at me and said he liked my natural hair & studs and asked if he Could rock dem as well,i Jus smiled..Few weeks later I visited and was thanking him for taking care of my sister, the next word that came out of his mouth was “You will marry me o! Is not about saying thank u ” I smiled and den my sister immediately started giving him sum details about me,we exchanged contacts,few months later we started dating.
    Fast forward to 23rd July 2017 he said we should go see a movie and that I should invite my best friend,that was how seeing a movie turned into a surprise proposal,wit his friends,and some of my friends that I have not seen in ages,he went as far as getting their contacts and that really melted my heart,and of course I said a big “YES” to the love of my life . We are getting married on the 20th of January 2018… @shanasanni and @riiri90 is our ig handle

    September 23, 2017 at 6:57 am

    In June, 2015 I was on my way home after work and a car pulled over, it was a certain guy, he was with his friends in the car, and he asked me if I was on my way home and the direction I was headed. Apparently he was going the same direction as myself but he wasn’t headed home at the time but was on his way for classes. So I was wondering to myself, why pull over in the first place to ask where I was headed when you ain’t even asking to give me a ride. SMH right? ?. I knew he worked on the Same street as myself as I always passed by his office, I even had a friend who worked in that same office, so whenever I saw my friend with him, I would just say a very hesitant hello and continue conversing with my friend. Little did I know he liked me but thought I was dating his colleague. (Asking would have cleared the air right, guys though?). Lol. Fast forward to November 2015, he started saying more hellos whenever he saw me and we exchanged numbers in December. I was like he’s cool anyway, so why not. I was single to stupor at that point anyway, so no big deal. But he never called except on Christmas day to wish me a merry Christmas. ??.
    Fast forward again to July,2016, he called again saying he was looking for a house to inspect for his friend who wants to buy a house (he is real estate consultant) and I at the time was working in a mortgage bank. Happily I met him on a Saturday to show him some of my company’s properties that was up for sale. I had High expectations to sell a property and maybe be paid sales bonus. Yeayyy. After the inspection, we had lunch. (Later into our relationship, he confessed to me that the inspection wasn’t real). From that day, he always called me at least 4 times a week, till it graduated to an everyday thing and before I knew it, I was initiating calls too ??. He officially asked me to date him in Oct, 2016 and in the 7th month of our relationship, precisely may, 18th, 2017, just 4 days after his birthday, he proposed to me. ??. Now the proposal is an entirely different story on its own. ???. About two weeks to the proposal date, he took me to Bogobiri house, ikoyi and we had a wonderful evening. Bogobiri has this Karaoke thing that goes on there so he told me he would be singing the next time we visited. I laughed so hard cos he has a wonderful voice??. (Opposite please). So on the 18th of may, after work, we went to Bogobiri and I tried but to no avail to talk him out of disgracing us both. Little did I know he had planned everything with my friends, my sisters, his siblings and friends. Same friend I chatted with while I was there, telling her that I was about to be disgraced by his singing. Same sister I called informing her I would be home late since I was still out. Wow. When he started singing our love song (the Vow by Timi Dakolo) I was just laughing and intermittently taking pictures of him from my seat which was at the back and wasn’t helping me take good pictures for laughs. But then when people started reacting in some kind of way, I stood up to see what was going on only to see my friends, my sister and his sisters walking towards me with placards of ‘Will you marry me?’ God!! I was soo shocked. I just couldn’t believe it. How on earth did I miss out on this planning. I’m very inquisitive, so how? I was trembling and speechless. I’m a shy person kinda, so standing there with everyone taking pictures of us and shouting excitedly, was just too awesome.
    Then he knelt down and asked, and yes, I said a big YES to my Baby, my love. I said yes to a beautiful beginning. ?it’s been wonderful so far. Trust me, I can’t forget our love story ever.
    So many in-between events. But that would be writing a novel. ???. #nostalgia
    I made the right choice #nodoubt
    Our wedding is for February 10, 2018.

    My name is Madinat and my fiance’s name is Hakeem. Our love was love at first sight. On that beautiful day, I paid my cousin a visit at her in-laws house. A cute guy came in to see my cousin’s mother Inlaw, he’s also friends with my cousin’s husband He walked into the balcony where my cousin and I were. I noticed the charming smile on his face, I smiled back and we both greeted, then he left. I couldn’t stop thinking about the smile when i left my cousin. The next day my cousin called me that the guy that was with us the previous day has asked for my number and she had giving him. Few minutes later he called me. We connected immediately, we have so much in common. We went on several dates and that was it.. we just knew we were meant for eachother. He is a perfect gentleman and my baby. Three months later, he asked me what were the necessary steps to take when asking for my hand in marriage from my family, then and there was when he told me I am going to be his wife. And that was how he proposed (the traditonal african way ). Weeks went by and i still hadn’t gotten my ring while family meetings were already taking place planning our introduction. I called my guy and said “baby our families can’t be planning introduction and all when I haven’t gotten my ring oo” he smiled and said nothing. Two days later he came to see me and proposed properly with a beautiful ring. It wasnt a proposal with petals and roses but it meant the whole world to me.He is my dream come true. Our wedding date is 30th of December, 2017. We did our introduction couple of weeks ago. His handle is @haykay_fortyfizzlel and mine is @mcivermadinah. We really hope to be lucky enough to win this

    My name is Ibitoye Omolayo Mary and I want to share our love story with you.
    I met Samson Egbepeju in 2009 and he asked me out but I told him my interest then was schooling and we were just friends. I joined facebook in year 2010 and he started asking me out all over again, sliding into my inbox and leaving messages on how much he needs me in his life but i declined.
    In year 2014, he sent me a message on facebook book telling things about his girlfriend (ex), he she’s fond of talking about her ex and how much such talk hurt him and if he too should double date but I told him not to. I entered my first relationship in year 2015 but I was not happy because the guy I was dating then is a great lair…. If Victor tells you good morning, you need to check d time if it actually morning, that is how bad his lying techniques are. I ended the relationship on 28 of August that same year which was on my birthday.
    I accepted Samson’s proposal December that same year and our love story started from that good December. I always say to him not to propose to me until I’m done with schooling but he did not listen, lol. He called me from the kitchen one day while I was cooking for him to please come and I thought it was something serious. I met him on his knee and he asked me to marry him…. I was surprised because I did not expect him to ask me to marry him that year. I said yes!!!!
    We had our introduction on the 18th of March 2017 and I can’t believe it’s just 21days to our wedding!!! Yes, we are getting married on the 14th of October 2017.
    He has been the best thing in my life and and can’t wait for our forever I do!
    We need this pre-wedding picture please.

    We met in college, he was my senior.He was quiet and calm&I was the opposite. We weren’t necessarily friends,but we got along well.Few years later,we moved to same uni.There we hardly even see,& dint have each others contact.But one day, i went for an event& we met there, we chatted for long that it felt like he was the reason i came.We exchanged numbers on that day &he promised to keep in touch. Well,he never did,for over a year,I’d already forgotten him,till the day i got a whatsap chat from him,meanwhile I’ve been looking forward to his call or chat, and never made effort to reach him anyway, i was doing shakara.lol..From that day he chatted me, we never stopped talking, we became so close that i look forward to hearing from him all the time, he was my friend,my bestie,i can discuss anything and everything with.He never asked me out though, i could have asked him sha if morale.dint fail me.lol..I settled for being besties sha,I’d rather be his bestie than nothing because i was literarily addicted to him. Fast forward to 6years later of our bestie-ship, he woke up one day, called me on the phone that its time for us to date,i dint see that coming though,because i felt my role was being his bestie.lol..Well,There was no need of doing shakara,because it felt like I’ve known him all my life, so i agreed for the upgrade. It wasn’t as smooth as i thought it would be, but every day presented a reason why i should be in a relationship with him,btw..He was in abuja and I’m in Lagos. Long distance ish,but that never stopped us from growing in love.A year plus 9 months after, one Saturday morning, we were doing our regular online bonding, he told me he would be going to mechanic & i said salon for myself. But that my sister mentioned we would go out in the evening for dinner, and I’m not too sure if i want to tag along.He encouraged me to go with them, telling me how he would be busy and won’t be around to keep me company should i get bored at home, well, i had to accept, this one my main reason for staying back is now pushing me to go.Evening came, i got ready for dinner, sent him pictures of how i was looking, but he appeared not interested & all.When i asked,he gave reasons of being occupied with too many things.So we got to the venue for dinner,got our sits, i sent him pic again &this time he ignored, i was fuming at this time,like whats that he is even doing that wont allow him talk to me, i was gonna call him on the phone when the waiter brought a plate covered to me& i was curious to find out what’s In it since we haven’t ordered yet.That was when i saw will you marry me written in the plate..I didn’t know that the times i couldn’t reach him, he was aboard, flying. to lagos to suprise me…and ofcourse i said YES,coz i couldn’t be happier. Our wedding date is set for December 30th this year.His IG handle is EbubeAhiarakwe &mine is OkwyObassy.Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you. BN rocks!

Slid in my DM with ‘why are you up at this hour’, it was past midnight, told him I was up baking for a little girl in my church because it was her birthday. Then he went on to tell me how much he likes cakes. And then it began…..
    He asked for my BBM pin and phone number, called the next day and said ‘I wanna date you, I want something serious’ and I wanted to go the whole ‘ i’ll think about it ‘ as I had just had a bad breakup. He went on to say he didn’t want any dillydally-ing cos he knew what he wanted. I said yes to him and we started dating….

    The Proposal
    Ok…..there was no proposal. He could not afford it. All he said while lying in bed one day was ‘ I really want you to be the mother of my children and the only Mrs Seun Aluko. I wish I have the money to do it right but I can promise i’ll put your comfort and that of the kids ahead of mine’ and that was enough for me as a single mom of two. He loves me enough to go all the way with me and my baggages.

    We don’t have a lot but i’m happy…we are happy. Wedding is February 10, 2018. We both stay in lagos. He is not on instagram but my hande is @ame_lumiere .
    Winning this will be the only luxury in our wedding journey and it would be a great memory. #Hopeful

    My name is Jenet and my fiancé’s name is Chukwuka. Well my fiancé and I work in the same parastatal since 2015 but I was in a relationship that ended badly in February 2016, but this young man has been on the look out since 2015 waiting for the right time to approach me. So he got close to me in march 2016 when he knew I was no longer in a relationship, he started by being my friend and asking for movies because people in my office know I watch movies a lot. That was how we became close, then by May he requested that I go on a date with him which we did. Of course, he asked that we start a relationship but I rejected because I am Yoruba and he is Igbo and we work in the same office. After lot of “marry me now “, ” I am serious “, ” I really love you “…. I told him to speak to my guardian. I thought he would not because my guardian is also my pastor to my surprise he did and got the full support of my guardian. well I did my own praying and fasting to confirm if I really want the relationship because I didn’t want to make another mistake. Finally in September 2016, I consented to his love overtures. So on the 18th of May 2017, I wanted to skip evening service that day because I was so tired and looking scruffy after a long rehearsal,he persuaded me to come to church that particular day which I did. After the service I just noticed all my friends smiling and bringing out their phones, then from nowhere” how did love find me “by Asa was being played then my guy just went on his knees and proposed to me. I was so surprised and shocked and I couldn’t do all the madness I had promised my friends I will do on the day am being proposed to, I had made mouth ooo. But that day all I was so shy that even my friends was surprised because I am not the shy type. All i could do was nod and say YES. That day was just a day away to making it one year that he asked me out. We had a lot of obstacles because of our differences in culture but we overcame them. We did our introduction on my birthday August 4 and we are getting married on his birthday DEC 2 2017. We love each other regardless of our different tribes and am grateful that he never gave up and waited till the appointed time. My IG is @jeneyaboyeji_ and his IG is @chukwukaobindu. Thanks.

    Hmmm, throat cleared. This is actually nerve racking (a lot like when I proposed) Where should I start from….lets start from the beginning; I promise it doesn’t get boring.

    The Beginning

    It all started in 2014 when I was a 400level student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba (AAUA) in the department of Educational Management. I was organizing an event themed “Cased14Closed” which was like a graduation party for all the final year students in my school. I wasn’t the type that had lots of friends but I had to organize an event so by force by fire I had to get some. The best way I knew how to get people was by forming an organizing committee of 6 people. I created a group on my blackberry messenger (BBM) (we all did that one time or the other; didn’t we?) and requested that all my committee members should add all their friends that are students of (AAUA) which they did.
    Hmmm…….this gist is getting to the good part, In early 2015, I started a chat with one of the contacts that was randomly added to the group meant for “Case14Closed” in 2014;
    the person was none other than Ogundeyi Omotola Grace –the most beautiful, inspiring, naughty, childish, motherly, caring (Abeg let me gush about her) lady I have ever known. We talked a lot about business, shared ideas, it seemed like we had the same kind of ideas and plans but we were both in separate relationships and I knew she digged me *wink*. We lost contacts twice before we finally reconnected in April 2016(my year of GRACE ‘notice what I did there’). I wasn’t in a relationship and she was going through very serious emotional trauma at that time (sorry babe I had to dish).
    So we talked a lot, chatted, shared tough and touching memories we’ve pulled through. I started liking her more and getting used to sharing every of my free period with her. I stylishly asked if she won’t mind being my girlfriend but you know ladies…… It took her a long time and cost me a lot of talking as in a whole lot of begging…gosh… but finally she said yes on June 12, 2016, which happened to be on a Sunday; a glorious Sunday indeed.
    Oh! That reminds me, while the whole chatting and talking and begging was going on, we had never met it person. All we had to show for our relationship was phone calls, chats and pictures of us on social media. Our first meeting was on June 14, 2016, which happens to be the 2nd day after she accepted to be my girlfriend. Damn! I was nervous, I’m pretty sure I changed my shirt upto four times.
    I was very nervous because we all know pictures can be very deceiving. I didn’t know if who I saw online was going to be the same person I will meet, maybe less or more than my expectations. The moment I was waiting for finally came, I finally met her in all her glory, regal, graceful, and more beautiful that I could ever imagine. We spent the day gisting, laughing and playing like we have known each other for years. And that day sprang into a beautiful relationship for 4 months until life got in the way.

    The Break Up

    This part gets a little bit gloomy. Individual differences started to set in we were just 4 months into our relationship and things got really tensed up that she had to break up with me. It was so painful; I became lonely and had to keep myself very occupied with work so I won’t have to think about it much but guess what? “It didn’t work” I tried not to chat with her or even check her profile but I could not help it not until I saw she used a guy’s picture as her display picture on whatsapp. I just concluded she had moved on and I should also do the same.
    I moved on alright but it didn’t work out. I was so close to getting married to someone else completely, someone I barely knew – when reality set in that this wasn’t the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

    The Making Up

    I was getting used to the idea of being alone when my angel walked back into my life. Omotola chatted me up on that fateful day asking me if I could do a graphic design for her and I obliged (Pretty sure she wanted me back). We got talking again and then we realized we were still in love with each other; after just few days I realized that she has always been the one for me, the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. We began our love story again and I swore to myself I was never letting go ever again; what better way than to put a ring on it.

    The Proposal

    December 9 was her birthday and it was on a Friday, She was in school (AAUA) and I was at work (Lagos). We agreed that there will be no sort of celebration and I will probably make it up to her some other time. On Thursday, 8th December 2016, which was a day before her birthday, I got a day off work for the Friday, 9th December 2016 off. I didn’t tell her and decided why not surprise her with a big surprise and then a bigger surprise. I chatted her roommate to help me get someone who can bake a cake for her on my behalf to give her in school and I need it ASAP. The cake would also be inscribed in ‘will you marry me’.
    She is a sucker for bags so I decided to get her a bag as gift, which was part of my proposal pitch. On her birthday I called to wish her ‘a happy birthday and asked her to make a wish. She said she wished that I could bring her chicken n chips with ice cream (she is a foodie). I am no genie but I was determined to make her wish come through; I got to Akungba and made a stop at Chicken Republic, called her friend to meet me there who came along with the cake. She was in school so I had to wait in her neighbour’s room. When she got back, she had a sour look on her face, apparently she had not enjoyed her day at all.
    She was laying on the bed when I walked in and I said “Good afternoon, you wished for chicken and chip with ice cream and your wish has been granted”(I’m Mr smooth), when she looked up, she saw me and burst into tears, I told her “Happy birthday love”. I said, “This is your first birthday you will have celebrating having me as your boyfriend and I cant afford not to make it a special one for you.” I then gave her the bag I bought for her and told her to check inside (It was like hunting for treasure). When she opened the bag, she saw a note that says, “I can make your wish come true but firstly, you will have to find me.
    I am inside the smallest part of me”…… She searched inside and saw a smaller purse, when she opened the purse, she saw another paper that say, oops… “I’m not here but look around, you will find me in a carton box strange in your room”, when she looked around, she saw the cake box covered and when she open it, she saw a cake with “will you marry me” written on it…by the time she turned back, I was already on my kneel and I popped up the question with my lips trembling, voice breaking, hands shaking and my eyes clouded, I brought out the ring and I said “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” she nodded her head to say yes. Wedding date DECEMBER 09, 2017. Thank you @miz_bimbz for the tag, to my lovely, caring, most beautiful, hardworking, and one of the strongest lady I have ever known @lannyreal, I’ll forever love you and Thank you @bellanaijaweddings for this.

    Hello. My name is Ihuoma Chukwuemeka and my fiancé’s name is Philip Omusi. We both met thru a mutual friend sometime in July 2014. We started dating in August 2014 and it was the best feeling ever! But there was a lot of issues. I am a Witness and he’s a catholic, and ethnic differences too. I was very temperamental while he was cool. He constantly begged me to stop getting angry but sometimes I would get angry and snap. Then the unexpected happened, we broke up in March 2017. He was tired of putting up with my tantrums. I pleaded, cried, but nothing worked. His Mom prayed so much about it and encouraged me no to give up. She checked up on me everyday, same thing with his sister. I fasted and I prayed and asked God for his will to be done. Then His will actually came to pass. We got back together on Easter Sunday(safe to say i rose with Christ) and then on August 5th with help from his friends, my friends, his sister, his mother and my brothers, he planned a surprise proposal that made me cry. He had already gotten my mom and brothers consent so he asked me to Marry him! I cried because i thought it wouldn’t happen. Thanks to him, I am successfully trying to work on my anger and i am making good progress. His handle is @itsluni

    Hello BN, my name is Ngozi.

    I’m so excited about sharing my love and proposal story with the BN family.

    So it all started on 5th of January this year, 2016 wasn’t a very good year (love-wise) truth is, I’d given up and then i decided that I’ll love me and me alone, lol. So on 4th of January, i decided to give myself a treat at my favorite salon and of course after every superb hairstyle, a selfie must follow(lol).
    I changed my dp and my lovely sis updated hers with the picture and as fate would have it, my fiancé was online at the same time (he was friends with my sis) and he started to probe and all and finally asked my sis for my contact details.
    She told me and i was like, Nah nah nah, I’m not interested. The next morning I was preparing for work and he was already asking her again, when she told me, I was like this early? Ok give him my BBM pin, if he’s boring I’ll just block him lol.
    So we started chatting and even mtn network was on his side, chats weren’t delivering on time and then I gave him my phone number. Soon as I got home from work, he called and he sounded very interesting; I remember him asking how old I was and me saying I’m your aunty and then he said, aunty I can marry you o… Lol

    We started dating about a few weeks later and then…. The proposal…

    We were discussing one evening and he said, babe I’m thinking of proposing to you at Barrister David’s (his very close friend) wedding in March and I was like, if you want me to faint, try it.. Lol. We laughed it off and then planned his trip to Lagos to meet me for the first time.
    He landed Friday morning on 3rd February, I just couldn’t wait to get off work to meet him, I left work and I alighted at his lodge and then we went in and he was like, open the door and I was like, ehn? Better open it or I go to my house… Lol. He opened the door and as I walked in, there was a loud scream “SURPRISE ” I can’t explain how or when I fell to the ground in shock, I saw my sister who was supposed to be in school, my bro whom I gist with every morning before going to work, my very close friends, some of whom I’d spoken with the same day, they got me 10/10, I even dropped my moimoi cause of the shock lol.

    Then my fiancé said a couple of sweet words that nearly made me faint lol, and then went on his knees together with my siblings and friends lol, and I said YES and we’re getting married December 16th 2017.

    September 23, 2017 at 6:23 pm

    Hi. Good evening.
    My name is Victory Odu and my fiancée’s name is Ikechukwu Orji. We’ve been friends for 11yrs now. We met in church, and became close friends when I joined his dance group in 2006. Ever since then, we became BFF’s and knew everything about each other, even while I was away in school we still maintained constant communication. Iyke knew about all my relationships and I did his too and he would jokingly always ask me “when is my turn na, you have jumped me again abi, and I was in the queue waiting for my turn o”…I would always laugh at his jokes. Deep down I knew he was serious, but he never expressed his true feelings to me until much later, and when I asked him why he didn’t tell me earlier, he said he was scared of loosing our friendship…but unfortunately, I was in another relationship. My entire family knew and loved him, he always comes visiting. He’s always very funny and playful and likes to showcase his dancing skills in front of everyone.

    We’ve both been in and out of bad relationships. When he wanted to ask me out officially, he didn’t come to me first. He went to my elder sister and told her about his true feelings and intentions for me. He finally told me and I officially became his girlfriend on my birthday March 5th last year. He went ahead and informed my parents about his intentions and they accepted. He informed his parents, his siblings and our Pastors and leaders in church…and we became solid.

    The Proposal
    On the 1st of January 2017, Iyke travelled to Abuja for some work. He promised to be back in Lagos on the 2nd because we had planned a family outing to go to the movies on the 3rd January 2017. By Tuesday he wasn’t back, he called that the work got extended till the next day which was 3rd, this news broke my heart.
    The day came and I called him so he could take the next available flight back to Lagos, he later called that the flight has been cancelled and he wouldn’t make it to Lagos to go out with us. He told me too look very good and enjoy myself and imagine that he was there with me…I sadly said ok. On our way to the cinema we stopped to pick some friends of ours. I was wondering why we were sooo many… I asked my sisters why, she said the more the merrier.
    On getting there, one of my bro-in law was already there taking orders, he was just moving Ugandan…lol! When we entered the hall, I saw yet another friend, he was like Iyke invited him since he won’t make it, I was like ok. Then my sis forced me to sit on d edge, I was like no jor I’m comfortable here, she said I should help her secure the seat for a friend that will be coming late, I reluctantly agreed.
    The movie started with various ads showing, then all of a sudden, another video started playing on the screen, telling a story of two lovers, how they met and how far they have come…with beautiful words, familiar words that only Iyke and I knew about… immediately I saw them I knew my man was around, then my pics started displaying on the screen with Jason Derulo’s song “will you marry me” playing…at this time I was already sitting on the edge of my seat and was in awe. Then I saw Iyke walking in majestically holding my ring in his hands, he came to me and knelt down and said “will you marry me” I was so in shock and I almost forgot to say “Yes” my sister was like “say yes na” and I said YES. I was shy and elated at the same time, I was so happy! My man is a master surpriser, he said he was in Abuja ?

    We will be getting married on the 11th of November 2017.
    Thanks so much!!!

  41. Uzoma Elizabeth

    September 23, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    Hi, My name is Elizabeth Uzoma. For most of my life, I felt he would never notice me. He was the only reason why I was so excited that my dad insisted I go to that particular secondary school. He had been my crush since i was a kid (we grew up knowing each other), and while in the same secondary school I would linger around the kiosk during break time, waiting for when he’ll pass by- I’d practically stalk him, lol! He left the school, and moved to the university and I had given up on trying to be noticed because I was sure that with the way girls floated around him, there was no way he was going to see me as anything other than a ‘junior sister’.
    Yet, God decided to bless me for the many good acts that I had done in my life when in SS3 I noticed that the calls started getting longer and frequent. Those were one of the best moments of my life-finally having the feeling of being worthy of his attention. On October 2o, 2011 amidst an unsuccessful scrabble game (because he was so nervous), he asked me to be his girl. There was no better music to my ears. Yet, at that age i was so afraid of break ups, and i asked him, “before i say anything where do you see us in five years”. He answered, ” Getting married, I guess”. I was pleased with myself that i could get him that nervous and sweating. Later on, he would tell me that he always noticed me, but felt he was never enough,
    We helped each other grow in love, in life, and in Christ. During our relationship, we have witnessed each other’s best moments, and tough moments. He has proved to be God sent in my life, and he could do those little romantic things that make my heart melt- whether it’s hiding chocolates all over my room, or taking off his shirt to fan me while i read (because i couldn’t assimilate in the heat since the university always chose to have low power supply during exam periods).
    August 22,2017 was a very special day. I had actually always said that I never wanted an engagement ring. Always “forming” that the only ring I’ll wear is a wedding ring. Plus I didn’t see the need since everyone knew that we will get married from day one. Much later, omo!!! I knew i had messed up really bad…because I so wanted a ring(i guess there’s just something it does to your psyche. ). But I just decided to rule it out since I had already spoilt it. On that day, God had played everything to his favour. He had wanted to travel to get the ring blessed by my Pastor, but fortunately my Pastor and I paid his family a visit after evangelism. So, he got the Pastor aside to pray on the ring (found out later) and called me away. Then he started talking about the milestones we’ve had, and how I’ve made him very happy. And there it was…too beautiful to imagine that it was really mine.
    Although the ring was so beautiful, what really blew my mind was that he saw the need to still do that, despite everything. So, our wedding is set for April 28th, 2018 by God’s infinite grace and mercies . ?

    I haven’t asked her to marry me. Don’t get me wrong I’d love to. Bought the ring. Rose gold, just like she hinted. She’s perfect but I’m not sure she’s for me. There has to be something right? That feeling of “I can’t wait for my forever with you to start” “You jump I jump!” She’s perfect, but if I went down on one knee, I might be making the biggest mistake of my life.
    So I’m going to ask her tomorrow, and maybe the feelings will come after. Maybe.

      You need to pray about it marriage should not be a one day thing or a month or year it’s a lifetime unless you are 100% sure you should wait because you should get married because you know you love her and she is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with unless you want to keep having regrets eg. Wishing you waited dnt get me wrong I’m happy for you but getting married is about finding your love your best friend someone you can say everything to literally your other half

    My name is Chinenye and I’d like to share our love and proposal story with you.
    So Bae (Nonso) is a banker and I come to that bank regulary but I never get to exchange pleasantries with him. Every staff of that bank soon became an acquaintance but I’ll never say hello to Nonso.
    Fast forward to December 9th 2016, I was at the bank to cash a cheque and the crowd in the banking hall was such that I couldn’t stand. And there he was attending to customers. I still don’t know why I walked towards him but I did and said these words “please I need your help”
    I told him I was in a hurry to meet an appointment and I need to cash this cheque. He asked that I join the queue and I gave him that look (you know that “Dude are you for real look”) lol.. He got the look and quickly asked that I sit down. One look at the cheque he said to me “you are an igbo girl?” Where are you from? I said Abia. And he went on about how his uncle’s wife is from my place and I teased him about getting a wife from my place seeing that his uncle’s wife has been a good woman. We had a good long laugh about it and he blurted “we should get married you know” and I screamed “absolutely” I got this phone call and I had to leave immediately. I quickly wrote down my phone and account number on his notepad asking that the money be transferred to my account and he can give me a call once that is done. The look in his eyes the moment he heard me say on the phone “I’ll be there shortly” said it all. He had caught the bug.. My charm hit him in the head instantly *lol” and he said “please stay a Little longer” but I had to leave and he had to work .. It felt like we’ve known each other a long time. I got the alert and he called to confirm. And called again but certainly not to confirm the transaction .this time. Lol*
    The proposal
    By June 2017 Bae and I have had the best six months of our lives together and I couldn’t be more grateful to God for bringing me great happiness in a short while. With every passing day our bond grew stronger. We had this little fight and I was really mad at him. I didn’t want to see him. He had called severally that day to apologize but my “shakara” got the better part of me that day. So he came over that day and filled my ears with the best words I’ve ever heard anyone say and just when I thought he was done he said to me. “Will you marry me” I moved from 0 to 100 real quick. Dude it’s just been six months and I wasn’t expecting a proposal that quick but in his words..”From that moment in the bank I knew you you were the one I’d waited for all my life”
    Of course I said yes (Why else am I typing this) lol*
    Our wedding comes up on the 30th December 2017.
    And I really hope we win this. He’s always accused me of “worshipping” bellanaija. At least something good is gonna come out of the “worship” lol*
    My ig handle- nursechi
    Bae is not on ig but he’s so gonna get an account ASAP Coz he’ll be posting our pics there soon.. (Yes we’ll win)
    Thanks bellanaija.
    I love you still whether or not we win.. But we’ll win

    Hello, my Name is Olabisi and i started talking to my fiance on my birthday last year that is May 21 2016, a male friend of mine put up my picture on his dp and he ( my fiance) obviously liked me and asked for my pin. He had a tough time conversing with me because i just got out of a breakup and i really didnt want to have anything to do with any man.
    We had our first hang out two weeks after we started talking and from the time i saw him, one spirit kept saying to me that he was my husband but i just waved it off. The hang out was cool and i had a nice time. We had a lot more after that and he was just a very sweet person but i wasnt buying all that lol .To cut the long story short, We were friends for like 5 months and on the fifth month i realised i wanted to try dating again. I already liked and was fond of him. We started dating September 2016.
    He met my parents and i met his as well.
    Fast forward towards the end of June this year, i had a car accident and as expected he was there with me all the way. 1st of july, i travelled to Ibadan to shoot a wedding (i am a photographer) and then i got back to lagos same day but i had to get to the hospital for check up. My fiance kept calling me to come over to his place after my checkup, i really just wanted to go home but he insisted. I got to his place around 10pm. He opened the door, stood there staring at me, i was wondering what was going on so i left him there and walked right in..
    Right from the entrance i saw scented candles arranged beautiful so i traced it to the parlour, right there in d parlour, i saw this electric light popping Will You Marry Me? I didnt realise it was a proposal.
    I was shocked lol. I turned back and this amazing man was on one knee with the dazzling ring. I tried to laugh or cry hard but the plaster on my head from the accident wont allow me lol . He was there saying all the reasons why he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I could not find the tears i was just laughing till i said YES! He is everything i asked God for. So i asked why he proposed now and he said after the accident i realised i dont want to lose you. I have had this ring since October 2016 but i waited for the right time, he said. I got a bit teary lol. It was the perfect proposal for me. Just the two of US!

    We were suppose to get married this year but i lost my mom just last month. Our introduction would be in December . We have not fixed our wedding date yet but we are looking at March 2018.
    I would really love us to get this because i have looked forward to working with Tapstudios but if i cant get that, i hope we get this.

    I need december 2015, I came back to Nigeria to work. I met my now fiancé for the very first time and he told my cousin that he wants to marry me.

    Afterwards, we maintained a great friendship.

    I thank God for granting me with such a patient, God-fearing, loving man. Emmy, you have taught me so much about being a woman of faith and business.

    He proposed on a plane to Paris, France. I stepped out to the restroom and when I came out, he popped the question! I was so nervous but I said yes.

    It will be a great pleasure and a beautiful blessing to do life with you. I pray that our love continues to be centered around Christ and that our love for one another will only continuously grow.

    My thought of all my love for you, sometimes make me wanna cry. I realize all my blessings;I’m grateful To have you by my side.

    Good morning my name is Patience Effiong and my fiance name is Nathan Obiaro.

    HOW WE MET..
    We met 2014 April in my church, after singing with the choir I realise there was no space for him to sit-down because he played the keyboard and he needed to sit, he came to my side to share my sit (maybe because im real lepa..lol) i adjusted and we both shared the same sit.
    Prior to this time we’ve being attending the same church but we don’t know each other, seen or even notice each other till that fateful day. We became friends some weeks later we exchanged numbers, he started visiting me in my parents house but still didn’t say anything. A particular Sunday he took me out and said he wanted us to start something And every other thing is…????

    THE PROPOSAL
    I woke up on a Tuesday morning February 21st 2017 went to work and was suppose to go to church later for Bible study as usual but babe said we should go see a movie which was unusual of him… but since I was tired, I decided to take time out because He is not the type that loves hanging out… so I decided to cease the opportunity. we got to ikeja shopping mall and he decided I should enter the 3D game booth @ the entrance of the cinema before the movie we planned to see will start, i guess he had it all planned a long time because he knows I get scared easily.. I saw a 7mins scary video as i removed the 3D glass i saw my Heartbeat on his kneels with his friends and mine, standing while he asked with a smile, clear and shaky-bold voice “WILL YOU MARRY ME”?.. I was in shock and at the same time shy at the audience as they were already saying “say yes”! All i could utter was YES NA..(smiling) he lifted me and i felt i saw another side of my babe.. because it didnt even cross my mind.As he hardly takes me out or throw surprises. Suprise was an Understatement as i dont even know how well to explain the scenario. Thanks Bellanaija for the opportunity to share my story. Instagram handle ememeffy and obiaronathan

    Our Love Story???

    My name Is Akubo Gloria Ojonugwa and my Fiance name is Okolo Emmanuel Attai. We first saw ourselves in church during morning mass in Kogi state university NFCS two weeks after i gained admission in January 2011 and we kept stealing glances at each other?? this went on for almost two months?? Two shy people.. then the cat was let out of the bag. During My Freshers Welcome party in the university, he was an exco in the church(welfare director) to be precise and was incharge of Refreshments “Item7” commonly called, i could notice him struggling to be the one to serve the roll where i was sitted, he made great use of that opportunity and finally said his first word to me…. He called me UFEDO which means Love in Igala, lol that wasn’t my name but he gave me that name instantly. I replied with a smile and he offered my share of refreshment which included Doughnut and a drink kept in a nylon. I discovered a piece of paper alongside, My handsome Gazer wrote me a letter in pencil ??i left almost immediately as i couldn’t wait to read. Immediately I got to my quarters while standing with a beautiful smile I read the sweet and magical words line by line asking that we be should become friends, the joy i felt made me sleep like a baby. He swept me off my feet immediately as i couldnt get my heart off his personality. We saw after mass the following day and exchange numbers and started as friends immediately it was so sweet and smooth being his friend we read together and had a lot in common. We graduated from friends to best friends in June 16 2012 as he officially asked me to be his Girlfriend??. Being his girlfriend i now got full attention. He graduated early 2013 leaving me behind, now people started talking and asking hope this relationship wont end at the gate as several others always ended at the university gate.I ignored others and above all i prayed to God to keep us together. He went for nysc same 2013 got posted to Oyo, this was quite a long distance so we decided to make our communication TopNotch which has been of great help in helping us bridge the gap. He finished Nysc and moved to lagos, i graduated and nysc took me Cross river. We increased Communication and exchanged visits. Nysc ended and we both in lagos, can see when we want no barriers??…. Sure We had our quarrels but settled instantly thou i have a stronger heart? i enjoyed always getting being apologised too. Our Love story started off in 2011. I would describe our relationship as an epitome of Love built on God as it has come a long way and still counting…

    Proposal Story???
    He proposed on the 16th April 2017 Easter day. My TREASURE called me up saying after Easter Mass we would be having breakfast out that i should relate it to my family. This was something new as we usually only had dinners during our date. We got to Villa parks at exactly 9:3O AM, when we arrived I ordered Danish cookies and coffee, my favorite biscuits. I proceeded to opening my biscuits but then i noticed the cellotape it always has around it was slightly ruffed. i called the attendant and asked what was wrong with my order, he said it from the way the company packaged it. We all started eating was joyously munching cookies and sipping my coffee. my bae was staring at me as usual and asking if I was enjoying it. I Ate it all round pack by pack on eating the pack in the middle . I ate the first piece Bae stood up, ate the second he did as if he was fixing his socks properly, i had to give him a “what is this one doing look”. I picked the third piece then I saw Bae kneeling right in my front before my family. i was wowed, my mouth was open and speechless, my mum said go on dear then he professed his love again to me and asked the Big question. I gave a Big Yes, we hugged, shared a peck and sat down. I was so shy as people were looking, we finished our meal and left. I was filled with smile all through the day as i kept smiling and remembering all that happened was also very happy because i expected the normal prosposal i see everywhere but I got it in a totally different and sweet way.

    Our wedding is by Gods grace on the 6th of january 2018.

    MY LOVE STORY: SLIDE INTO MY DM 7YRS AGO,FRIEND ZONED FOR 6YRS PLUS,COURT FOR 5MONTHS 16DAYS
    It all started 7years ago(2010) when my fiancé Adebanjo Inioluwa Adeolu mi slide into my DM on Facebook that time before Sliding became a THING??.Anyways I can’t even say how I accepted his friend request then (God knew the end from the beginning,he orchestrated it all) cuz I hardly accept request from strangers and I hardly added people I don’t know then,I was a proud girl?but anyways he chatted me up severally from 2010-2012 which I ignored totally and never replied cuz in my mind then I was like who is this,I don’t know him so no point replying,wasn’t in d mood for new friendship.Then this particular day in 2012(2yrs after),I guess my brother was fed up of all the ignoring? and then decided to voice out one evening like that,so he sent this kinda very long accusing nd hurtful message to me,that night I was home gisting with friends and suddenly I saw his message and I was like woah and laughed serzly abt the message,also showed my friends so we all laughed together!!! But honestly God works in mysterious ways ooo for real cux on a norm,Me!!! Lilian Omo Ewa,Chei!!!! I would have blasted the hell out of him mehnn and reminded him frndshp isn’t by force and he shld move on!! But some how I was in a very good mood that nytand it all jus seemed very funny to me,then I replied and apologized to him for not replying him all this years(still can’t believe I replied nicely and calmly sha?)….and that was the beginning,So that night we got talking and gisted,then we found out we live close to each other(like 3streets apart),we kinda clicked immediately and I think the next day or some days later he decided to visit me at my place,my friends at home were eager to see him and they did…..truthfully that day after he left we abused him a lot sha???(u know how we ladies can be when together),I also went to visit him at his place abt a week later(he stayed with a cousin of his)and I was received really nice(I remember asking him hope he didn’t tell his cousins anything unusual cuz their welcome towards me was just too much-we ladies nd conclusions),he said No but in his mind he was wondering if I was alright to even think such?.We became good friends and always gisted and chatted,we confided in each other a lot, we visit each other,I invited him to my church which he came,enjoyed d service and he eventually joined and became a worker in my church,he became my buddy and bestie,we became so close my friends started saying they think he had feelings for me cuz he was just being too much a good friend but I disagreed with them,I only saw him as a friend and nothing more #shikena,Lil did I know what I was looking for in sokoto was in my sokoto??.Some years later(2014),I got into a relationship with some one else which I told him about before accepting d guy,he just said okay as long as i am happy,so some months after I started my new relationship, he came to the house and started saying how he loves me,have loved me for a long time now and all but was scared to say anything cuz he didn’t want to loose my friendship,I told him I couldn’t help him as I was in a relationship and loved the person(#wash,if only I knew?),I told him to love someone else as we continue being friends which he agreed on.He got into a relationship as I was in mine…..Fast forward to last year(2016),my relationship ended,his also ended before mine tho,which I was still consoling him for, then mine happened and I didn’t tell him but he knew and he didn’t ask me anything cuz i was really emotionally down,he jus kept being a good friend to me and always trying to make me happy.After some months I decided to tell him my relationship had ended and he told me he knew but didn’t want to talk abt it till I was ready to,about a week after I told him,he took me out for dinner,At the dinner we gisted,watched football(I love football a lot) and ate,then Inioluwa suddenly started this very long talk,well…the koko of the talk was he loves me and had never stopped loving me and wanted me to be his woman,although he knows I just had an hrtbreak but he just needed to tell me so I could consider him wenever I was ready to take a new step(brother needed to b sharp this time b4 someone else zooms me off again???),I was so upset and mad 4 real cuz I was still very hrtbroken from my failed relationship and was still hoping my ex and I would get back together,as a badass babe na nd my boiling sef I just got up and told him to take me home,i didn’t say a word after then till we got home, wen we got home,he began apologizing saying he knows I never expected to hear that from him but he just cldnt hide it again but he would give me as much time as I needed cuz he knows I am still heartbroken and needed to heal,I got down from the car and left him there hanging(chei!!! Pele ooo Mr A),that was the end of the chapter.
    We continued being friends,he never talked about it again,he was just always there consoling me,telling me the best is yet to come,making me happy and all,then towards d end of 2016 he talked about it and I told him I needed time to heal from my ex as I had given up on anything relationship and wanted to be alone,he said okay but still remained close by?.I started praying to God for healing,thank God for great friends that stood by me,I spoke to my pastor and mentor @mayonikks_studios about him and others cuz I didn’t want to make another mistake and I wanted 2 get it right this time(funny enough I had loads of toasters during that breakup time),they both called him and he BOLDLY heeded their call and answered their strong questions without fear (wen a man knows what he really wants),I got a good feedback from them including my friends,they already loved him but I wanted my own convictions,so I prayed and fasted and asked God for a SIGN if he was the right one and I got the SIGN( yaaaaaayyyy!!!!???),So I got the sign but was still adamant,I told him to give me till February,2017 and I would give him a reply,meanwhile december 2016 my ex chatted me up and asked if we cld start over again,I kinda was happy but I acted cold and told him if he was really serious then he shld come find me and obviously he didn’t,after some weeks I messaged my ex telling him I was expecting him since we talked the last time but his response that day helped me totally,there and then,all d left over feelings I had for him totally disappeared and veil covering my eyes were lifted and behold I saw this great man,with a very bright future, who understands me perfectly,who never wants to hurt me,who made me his priority(even wen we were friends).so I knew I had found THE ONE(same person I rejected and friend zoned for years,February 14th,2017 he took me on a boat cruise(I had always wanted to v a boat cruise experience)…. There on the boat we gisted and I told him I would be his woman….the excitement on his face was so real,he thanked me a lot and promised I wld never regret it.

    My name is Idenyi Maria Onne, while my fiancé’s name is Bariki Moses Ebi. I am from Benue State while he is from Bayelsa State- Nigeria.
    LOVE STORY
    He was in his final year while I was in 200 level when we met. We were members of the Quintessence Theatre of the Fellowship of Christian Students, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. We started off as friends, then became really close friends. After graduation, we rarely communicated but once in a while, he would call to check up on me. 3 years ago, he called to inform me his older sister was getting married at TBS, in Lagos. He urged me to attend the wedding. I attended the wedding with a mutual friend of ours. At the wedding, I noticed he kept staring at me in a different way and eventually whisked me out of the company of our friend, and ended up introducing me to all who cared to listen. Before his return to South Africa, he promised to visit me but never did. However, his calls became increasingly frequent till he dropped his flows…lol. My spirit kept urging me to say yes! despite the fact I wasn’t attracted to him. He wooed and entirely courted me, till I eventually fell in love with him.
    8 months into the relationship, he came to Nigeria for our introduction. We had our introduction on the 17th of December, 2017. The relationship naturally went into the line of marriage, so I personally didn’t think any proposal was necessary, as his intentions had always been clear. Haven done our introduction, my mind never went to a Proposal- talk more of having a dramatic one. Everyone has the proposal before the introduction( I assumed), so I felt we had skipped that point! I never knew something was brewing…lol
    PROPOSAL
    On the 2nd of September, 2017; during one of his routine trips to Nigeria, he insisted he wanted to know the exact location of my office. I then decided to take him there. On our way to Lekki Phase 1, one of our friends called to know where I was, because he wanted to pay me a visit at home. I told him I was in Lekki and he decided he would drop by to say hello before going. He asked us to wait for him at Farm City, Lekki Phase 1. Bae was calm all through the entire period, he kept acting as if our friend was a nuisance. I literally had to beg him to see our friend. While waiting at Farm City, my Fiancé excused himself because he wanted to use the convenience. When he was gone, I lifted up my head from staring at my phone to see all my colleagues, family and friends based in Lagos, approaching me.
    While still in shock, my Fiancé emerged from the midst of them with a cup of my favorite smoothie. Attached to the straw was a very beautiful ring. He knelt on one knee and asked if I would accept him as my husband. With a heart full of joy I said YES!!!! and the celebration began. He had contacted all my colleagues and friends and had told them his plan. The venue and strategy was also his plan!!! It was an awesome day!
    We would be getting married on the 9th of December, 2017.

    Thank you very much!!!!

    LOVE is a beautiful thing especially when you are with the right person it becomes a meaningful thing. My name is Ajoke and our love story goes thus
    HOW WE MET
    I met my fiancé in Church and we have known each other for 4years before letting me know his intentions. He was an usher and i was just a member as at then. On a glorious Sunday during the service, it was time to give our offering and the ushers were giving congregations offering envelope. This dude served my roll envelope and when he gave me mine he attached it with a piece of paper that reads “can i have your number pls” sharp guy abi even in the house of God afterall bible says watch and Pray. Lol but guess what i didn’t give him. On my way going home after service i noticed someone walking behind me and was like Good day, my name is this, How was service? Etal. So it all began on that faithful servant and the rest you don’t wanna get it twisted.
    THE PROPOSAL ( GHEN GHEN)
    The 24th of August 2017, i got a call from him that he wanted us to do something pretty special, dress up and go somewhere fancy for dinner. I was so so excited. Well then, guess who was so tired to go out a few hours to the dinner? You guessed right i was extremely tired with fever after work and my bobo was just calling every minute ( thinking the guy was bothered about me but he was more concerned about his plans). After 2hours of fever he came to my house to pick me and on getting to the location. We ate, gisted and guess what He did it. Am shy to continue. YES HE PROPOSED AND OFCOURSE BABY GIRL SAID YES. It was indeed a surprise to me cos i didn’t see it coming but i loved it. I felt this inner peace and gratitude to God that indeed i have found the bone of my bone and the flesh of my flesh
    So, come march 1st and 3rd 2018, we would be saying we do forever. I would be getting married to my best friend.

    Hi, I’m Seyi.
    When I woke up on the 21st of January 2016, I didn’t have any idea it would be any different from the 20th or the day before that. I got up, said my prayers, did the usual, left usual instructions for my staff at my dry cleaning outfit and left for work. Little did I know my life was going to change that day. Work went on fine, closed, drove down home, took a shower, the usual repertoire. My receptionist asked to close early and I agreed, decided I would attend to customers myself, no biggie. Business phone rang, and this gentle voice asked if we were open, said yes, behold she was outside, I quickly wanted to see who the sweet voice belonged to, and I saw this lady, got lost for a minute, then she asked what time we closed, prices etc, told her to get her laundry first and then we can talk, so she went to get her laundry. I ran back in, used deodorant and my fav perfume, practiced my best accent and waited. Finally she came back with her laundry and I gave her prices, gave her a discount, got her number and she left. I knew there and then, I had been smitten. Days passed and this beautiful lady was all I could think about, at work, at home, before bedtime, when I woke etc. Her clothes were ready, she came to get them, and I volunteered to help her take it to hers, discovered she lives four houses away from mine. Dropped it, she walked me back, and we decided to have a conversation, it was one of the most natural conversations I’ve ever had, instantly I felt I could tell her anything, like she was an old friend, I got her number officially then.
    Days after, I sent her a text, telling her I enjoyed our conversation and I would like to have another one and would love for us to be friends.
    That was the beginning of my troubles. I had no idea how difficult this angel was, 8 months of torture. She was coming from a bad relationship as was I, she was trying to work things out with her ex then, and I was there trying to get her to see me. I knew I was fighting a losing battle, everything I tried to do was futile, this woman had no eye for me. I tried subtly ask her opinion one day, asked her what a man should do if he has fallen in love with someone who doesn’t even see him, she told me “the man should better give himself brain and move on”. I was devastated but I was also determined. In August, I told her, I will be the one to marry you, she laughed, by then she was back with her ex but she was unhappy. Amidst all the rejection and harsh words from her and threats and such from her Ex now, I was determined. Come September, I got a better job opportunity in Lagos, and I told her I was moving. She looked sad and unhappy, I was confused, because that was more or less the first time she had shown emotion to me. By end of the September, she and her bf then had more or less given up. Fast forward to October 1st 2016, she became my girlfriend.I told her, I wasn’t in it to date for 5years or so, I want it permanently, she didn’t believe me. We had a wonderful latter 2016 and an even better early 2017.
    Fast forward to May 24 2017, she had invited me for her friends wedding, but I told her I couldn’t make it. Unknown to her, I was planning to ask her to marry me that Saturday, I had planned with the bride and her sister. She went to Lagos for the wedding and left me in ibadan. I went to Lagos that same day but she had no idea. She updated me about the wedding and I constantly apologized for not being able to make it. I was outside the venue, waiting for her sister and friends to give me my cue to come in. The DJ played our song Àdùkẹ́ by Tjan, and she had her back turned to the entrance and was being distracted by her friends who were all aware of my plan, I walked in and she saw me, the surprise on her face was heavenly, it was even more glorious when I got on one knee and asked her to marry me. She said yes. And it has been bliss ever since. We have our introduction on the 7th of October 2017 and wedding in February 2018 in Lagos.
    Thats our love story.

    LOVE STORY
    Love has no eye for age, the young and old both enjoy it! Halima and Ayotunde’s beautiful love story started 31st January 2010 at a friends brothers wedding. I was in my first year in Unilag while he was in his final semester in Babcock. The wedding took place at the Lagos tennis club, i had gone with two other friends, i wore a pink mini dress,had my hair in a bun, no makeup, I definitely wasn’t expecting to meet a man so i did not come to slay lol.Hours into the wedding i notice this young guy has been like my shadow all through the wedding staring hard at this African queen (permit me to praise myself?) he didn’t use words but eyes told me everything as he was monitoring my every move, i think at a point when he couldn’t decide how to walk up to start a conversation with me he sends his friend over to come ask for my name. Well, sooner than later, it was time to leave, he sees me off to the car and my friend who is coincidentally now my wedding planner says you guys look alike o, the side eye i gave her ehn lol. He gets my number after much hustle, *it was more like dude take let me rest biko* i think i even gave him a specific time to call me (a girl has to shakara small). As a sharp guy he calls me just as we drive off to be sure he has the right number, we start talking from then on,mid night calls suffered then lol, we totally synced had no secrets as we spoke about everything, we also didn’t even mind the fact that we were in different relationships at that time, we just went with the flow. The next week 4th February 2010 we meet again when he comes around for a rave #letsplayinxcess where we shared our first kiss *i was already feeling the guy* ?lol unknown to me that his girlfriend was at the same party??‍♀️(censored girl drama?).He goes back to school we grow even closer and officially start dating 26th February 2010, don’t ask how we left our partners so quick lol. Fast forward to April 2016 our relationship came crashing, which was really hard on me as i was in the hospital for weeks, he also had his fair share as i had found out he had also been hospitalized for days due to the break up. I tried to start another relationship like immediately because i just couldn’t get used to suddenly being alone after 6 years. It seemed all odds were really against us, we both got rid of pictures we had together, blocked each others contacts, partied like never before, anything just not to remember and sulk. As God would have it around that time i got an offer to go and work in our Ghana office which i saw as a great opportunity to heal properly. 3rd October 2016 i moved to Ghana, Bubba found out about this transfer and decided to come see me sometime in November as he was hell bent on getting our relationship back. He spent few days in Ghana as he was on leave from work, till date some friends and colleagues think he was in Abuja as he could not bring himself to tell them he was going after Halima ‘the ex’ lol, i also kept his visit sooo secret as I didn’t fathom any hope of us getting back. Safe to say from his visit we kept in touch,at safe distance but really concerned about each other. December i came home for the holiday plus my sister was getting married and he was definitely true definition of my support system during all preparations. I went back in the new year and we just simply kept in touch as friends, but he was always keen to know if i was seeing someone else. I think at this point he had finally made up his mind he was going to make me his wife whether or not i was truly convinced about our love, as he never wanted to trade my love for anything because he knew i was worth his heartbeat ?? *? My love, lock eyes with me so i can see into your soul, press your lips against mine so i know your taste, lay naked with me so i know your insecurities, sing a song to me so i know the tune of your heart. To you i give my all, for I believe that you are my destiny, to you i offer every beat of my heart, for i believe you will value it?. Our love never left! and with prayers, fasting and a persistent heart cheers to #HDlovestory #seven&forever #Againstallodds????.

    PROPOSAL STORY
    I had plans to come home for the Easter holiday, as i do every month, i call to notify Ayotunde (still friend zoned☺️) about my plans and he suggests we rent an apartment at 1004 for the weekend and have friends and family over for a get together. I was so loving the idea as i delight in cooking and having people over just to devour the meals. I arrive Lagos Thursday evening , we go clubbing at 57 same night because we just had the need to boogey down, catch up and unwind lol (our friends know I am a party rocker). Fast forward to easter Sunday 16th April 2017, i had gone to get groceries with my best friend sade in preparation for the get together, it was a long day as we had friends start coming over from morning and i was busy in the kitchen, (yes i was the maid and cook at my proposal party?), truly unaware my sisters, friends and boo had stuff up their sleeves. I remember my sisters friend asked me what the occasion was and am like *Ahh uncle Ayo has plenty money so its scratching him to do party* i even served her the last bottle of champagne, not knowing it was kept specially for the proposal toast *my bad*?. It was a full house in no time and i had not even showered, just like the first day baby and i met i had no makeup on ? our friends kept urging me to go have my bath and am like e fimile it is night already ko matter. When I finally had an opportunity to sit i sat by the dining table, then Bubba came along disturbing as usual and thanked me for hosting his friends (thinking back now I figure he was trying to juice me up in preparation for what he was about to do) but i just wasn’t paying attention, baby has wahala like that ?. I got up to go back to the kitchen as i had to check on what i had in the oven, fews steps away from the dining table i saw Ayotunde reach for a ring box in his back pocket, oh my I tried to run, i was not expecting this, i tried to escape from this, i wont even front lol, an attempt that failed, as his friend Kay close marked me and instead said I stepped on his shoes?. Babe reached out, kept me in a tight embrace and all i kept saying to him was Ayotunde no no, not now, not here, not in front of all this people, eyes teary already. Bubba wasn’t having any of that, just went down on one knee, held the ring out and couldn’t bring himself to utter a word, yes oh! my guy didn’t say the ‘will you marry me’ words or even serenade me small??‍♀️??‍♀️, but i knew just the right words he had in his heart. I was lost for words, beyond happy and totally blown, it was real, i was finally going to be Mrs Dixon (see as the name sweet??skiiiirahhhh) i have fantasied about that surname for the past 7 years. At that moment my little sister and bestie were literally over the roof SCREAMING lol (i wish I could insert a video here).Then my guy attempts to put the ring on and instead reached for my right hand lmao dude was that shaken?. Bottom line is i am getting married to the very man God has moulded for me, the one man that did not give up on our love, cares to a fault, my biggest pain in the butt, greatest love and the only person who understands that the fear of Halima is the beginning of wisdom??. *our inside joke* we are finally going to have our kiss daniel Mama dance* a dream come through! Countdown to #HDlovestory????

    Awww… So many beautiful love stories here

  64. Ademola Onabanjo-Daniels

    September 26, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    The Incomplete Love Story.

    Love at first sight it was ordained to be, but a perfect blend of Ego and Pride took over the normal flow, that all we both shared was Hate, “Beef” and the likes.

    We met through a mutual friend while serving our fatherland at NYSC Camp Batch B August 2014, though our mutual friend could see the future we were both blinded by the facade of our powerful personalities and thus I missed the pleasure of enjoying early enough the friendship of an amazing woman, one I call my rare gift of life, a breathe taking reflection of God’s magnificent beauty, a perfect blend of Brains and Beauty, my Wonder Woman.

    This was so as December same year, our mutual friend invited her to my church, where our Mask was off and the real inner beauty was discovered and it was now a story of “Where have you been all my life”. Our friendship was like spark of fire ignited during harmattan, the fire spreads wide and fast turning everything on as it catches.

    We both have similar interest, we both work in same Brand and Marketing Communication Industry, so time was never enough for the gist. She being Saved, Smart and Sleek just killed it as all I ever wanted was a woman with this perfect mix.

    I wanted a woman that could be a goddess in the BoardRoom, a warrior in the PrayerRoom, potentials to be a friend in the BedRoom, and @Mojisolafagade is an epitome of this package. Her core values as a lady resonates totally with my core values as a Lagos Bobo. And being from same village Ijebu Ode Ogun State was just like icing on the cake.

    Our friendship grew intentionally, as we understood our strengths, weaknesses, our compatibility and all needed for a successfully relationship, we decided to make it official last year 2016.

    Since then, it’s been all shades of Love, Joy and incomprehensible Peace, this Peace is not one in absence of War but Peace in spite of the War.

    I @Demoladaniels7 will choose @MojisolaFagade over and over again, she is my reasonable reason for living, she’s my world, she’s my life.

    The past 4years of true friendship, true service to each other, serving together in same church department and sharing same Branding related work issues, I knew our relationship was ordained before the foundation of the world, blessed by God and endorsed by Men of God, I couldn’t wait no more for further confirmation that she is the bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. And so, I decided to pop the question.

    I was ready to showcase her to the world but same time didn’t want to break the bank to achieve that, so I decided to declare my undying love for her and proposed at The Oxymoron of KennyBlaq show on Sunday 23rd July 2017. And yes mission accomplished, The world heard about my love for her as the news was kinda everywhere, where I acted as a thief and revealed the ring instead of the phone I was accused of stealing…. Yes, I did steal something; I stole her heart and kept it safe in mine.

    I can’t wait to tie the knot with her and begin the journey of no return till death do us part, I can’t wait to have, to hold, to nourish, to care and serve my best friend, I can’t wait to tell the world true love still exist in Lagos, I can’t wait to be her husband and help her be the very best she was created to be. And no other day would be perfect for this other than her 25th birthday date Saturday 10th March 2018, where the real Love Story will begin and have no end.

    Thank you Bella Naija for this beautiful opportunity.
    My love story with this so awesome Man of mine started two years ago but before then, we have been best friend buddies for five years with different lovers-and the unexpected happened then it dawned on us that we were meant for each other?
    First His girlfriend cheated and he was heart broken and I consoled him.Next I was engaged to my ex and he too broke up with me- my best friend was there for me. From then onward, we became very close but never for once did I imagine he was ‘the one’ because I never saw him that way for a reason(we are age mates?).
    PROPOSAL
    It wasn’t a typical one…He came around and we decided to see… We talked, watched a movie together and just held each others hand but the atmosphere was not the same (we do this as best friends even sleep on the same bed!) when I got home that evening I kept thinking about my best friend (could something romantic actually happen between us?)
    The following day he took me out for dinner, we went back to his hotel room and we just held each others hand pretending to be engrossed in the movie, knowing him to be introverted, I spoke up first “Justine I think I am having feelings for you ” and time froze, he just stirred into my eyes and began to confess his Love for me as well and right there he told me to wait for him since he wasn’t yet ready to settle down.
    And i waited for the man who knows my flaws and still loves me unconditionally and who i have grown to love so much!!

    The Incomplete Love Story.

    Love at first sight it was ordained to be, but a perfect blend of Ego and Pride took over the normal flow, that all we both shared was Hate, “Beef” and the likes.

    We met through a mutual friend while serving our fatherland at NYSC Camp Batch B August 2014, though our mutual friend could see the future we were both blinded by the facade of our powerful personalities and thus I missed the pleasure of enjoying early enough the friendship of an amazing woman, one I call my rare gift of life, a breathe taking reflection of God’s magnificent beauty, a perfect blend of Brains and Beauty, my Wonder Woman.

    This was so as December same year, our mutual friend invited her to my church, where our Mask was off and the real inner beauty was discovered and it was now a story of “Where have you been all my life”. Our friendship was like spark of fire ignited during harmattan, the fire spreads wide and fast turning everything on as it catches.

    We both have similar interest, we both work in same Brand and Marketing Communication Industry, so time was never enough for the gist. She being Saved, Smart and Sleek just killed it as all I ever wanted was a woman with this perfect mix.

    I wanted a woman that could be a goddess in the BoardRoom, a warrior in the PrayerRoom, potentials to be a friend in the BedRoom, and @Mojisolafagade is an epitome of this package. Her core values as a lady resonates totally with my core values as a Lagos Bobo. And being from same village Ijebu Ode Ogun State was just like icing on the cake.

    Our friendship grew intentionally, as we understood our strengths, weaknesses, our compatibility and all needed for a successfully relationship, we decided to make it official last year 2016.

    Since then, it’s been all shades of Love, Joy and incomprehensible Peace, this Peace is not one in absence of War but Peace in spite of the War.

    I @Demoladaniels7 will choose @MojisolaFagade over and over again, she is my reasonable reason for living, she’s my world, she’s my life.

    The past 4years of true friendship, true service to each other, serving together in same church department and sharing same Branding related work issues, I knew our relationship was ordained before the foundation of the world, blessed by God and endorsed by Men of God, I couldn’t wait no more for further confirmation that she is the bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. And so, I decided to pop the question.

    I was ready to showcase her to the world but same time didn’t want to break the bank to achieve that, so I decided to declare my undieing love for her and proposed at The Oxymoron of KennyBlaq show on Sunday 23rd July 2017. And yes mission accomplished, The world heard about my love for her as the news was kinda everywhere, where I acted as a thief and revealed the ring instead of the phone I was accused of stealing…. Yes, I did steal something, I stole her heart and kept it safe in mine.

    I can’t wait to tie the knot with her and begin the journey of no return till death do us part, I can’t wait to have, to hold, to nourish, to care and serve my best friend, I can’t wait to tell the world true love still exist in Lagos, I can’t wait to be her husband and help her be the very best she was created to be. And no other day would be perfect for this other than her 25th birthday date Saturday 10th March 2018, where the real Love Story will begin and have no end.

    We met on the 27th of nov 2014, 2weeks after the demise of my dad.
    my mum owns a beauty salon and it was one of those days when I wasn’t working and I decided to stay back and help around the salon.
    On a normal day, we hardly ever have guys come over for a pedicure. So this dude came in and said he wanted a wash, I was in a corner watching a show on the TV and cos all other apprentice were busy and “MR” was in a hurry, mum called me to do it. I declined immediately and continued with show. I had no choice but to oblige as t was a busy day” shortly after he was trying to make conversation. We then exchanged numbers and started talking, he became known to all cos he was always stopping by on his way from work, he met all my friends and we kicked off from there.
    So it was my birthday and he decided to take some of my friends out. I was super excited cos my friends were on my case already about taking them out on my birthday….I wasn’t up for it but bae told me it’s fine…and i could invite few of my friends to a birthday dinner at Orientals. I was super excited and so were my friends. Little did I know he had plans for the big day. He had already planned it out with my friends and I had no freaking idea.
    We were at d party and my friend took turns to say one or two things abt me. And then bae stood up to say something as well and I noticed all my friends bringing out their phones. It was at that point I knew something was up. He then went down on one knee and popped the question. Ofcourse I said YES!
    Who wouldn’t want to spend the rest of their life with a man as amazing as him. Oh well…the rest is history cos in few months from now, I’ll be taking his last name.
    Our wedding date is 10th DEC 2017

    Hi! God bless you for this, another beautiful feather to your cap. My name is Onyinye and my Fiance’ name is Gbenga. We met o the day i lost my mum last year in Kano. We became friends and later it progressed to being sweethearts. Things have been beautiful ever since then. Even though we don’t earn much, but we’re happy with the little God blesses us with, hoping that things will be better with the blessings that comes with matrimony. Our wedding is in November, to God be the glory! Even if i don’t win, i’ll still be happy cos our love is beautiful. I’ve read lots of beautiful stories here on BN, and always prayed and typed on this plateform that true and beautiful love would find me one day-it has finally. This is not low self esteem, but people featured here are not my class financially for now. Its a process and God is taking us there gradually and while He does, we’ll give Him praise in the process. One day our anniversaries and success stories will be featured on BN. God has filled my mouth with laughter that i can barely say much about our proposal story. God bless you all!!!

    I am Tekenari and my fiancée is Elizabeth. Our first time of meeting was very strange; we didn’t even look at each other face properly. She came to deliver a dress to a friend of mine who was my course mate back then in school. I finally met her at a friend’s child naming after 4 years I guess because before then I was always jokingly telling my friend to send my regards to her. So we met on that day and wanted to see her again because I always have the feeling she would be a nice lady but only wanted to be a friend.
    On that day I made sure I collected her number so I can always keep tabs with her directly but along the line I realized that friendship was not enough cause she loved me at second site (remember we saw before but never talked to each other) and I appreciated it. I wanted my brother to date her but he wasn’t interested so also was she as she was more interested in me. I realized she loved me but I was not sure of myself because I knew how innocent she was and I never wanted to hurt her feelings. As I get to know her better I realized I was doing what I ordinarily don’t do with other ladies like telling them secrets I normally would not say in my past relationship. So I had to open up and ask her to be my lady and she accepted. Few months later she visited me and I had the ring on the bed to welcome her into the room as I was right behind her and she gave me a hug so I knelt down to make the romantic speech which ended with “WOULD YOU BE MY WIFE”. And she said a big YES.
    Ever since then I have had peace and confidence in this relationship, I am happier, focused and more blessed. To me this is the first true relationship I have been. Finally I would get married to woman with the most amazing smile.

    Brian and I met in August 2009. He had come to my family house with a mutual friend to take my sister and I to a wedding (which turned out to be his ex’s sister’s wedding and I was the current bae??). We immediately struck a conversation and afterwards he took my number from his friend and prank called me for days until we became friends. We were friends for over a year until he finally asked me out in October 2010 which I said yes. We dated for almost 4 years with lots of ups and downs, mostly ups and broke up in 2014 when he left for his master’s in the UK. Though we lived our separate lives, he stayed in touch (oga couldn’t resist. Lol). Fate brought us together again last year and we started dating in May, 2016.

    Fast forward to July 29th, 2017, he flew me to Calabar (a city that holds too many memories for us) for a weekend getaway with his family and shortly after dinner, everyone (except me) was made to say something nice about me like itwas my birthday and before I could realize what was happening, he was on one knee with a beautiful aquamarine ring asking to be his wife and of course I said yes.

    Our wedding dates are, December,2017 for traditional wedding and January, 2018 for white

    Whoever does not believe in love at first sight is on a long thing……. It was love at first sight.. .. lol. My MODEL like I Will forever call him.
    We first met on his official assignment to Abuja at the airport, contact was exchanged and he called three weeks later, a few days to my Birthday. We spoke for hours, found a lot of common grounds and he insisted to come around for my birthday,. Trying to locate my house on my birthday, he missed his way and I decided to meet him where he was to make it easier. After series of merry go rounds, we located one another. The instant he saw me, he pulled me close and lifted me, well I couldn’t resist because like I said, I loved him at first sight and for the sake of havens, he looked more “handsomer” ?? than the first time we met. Lifting me whenever he sees me became a trademark and I love it. I could remember the drive back home, we had a deep connection and I was almost pinching myself to get a grip, #sighs. When we got home, he was welcomed by my dad which was very unusual, my dad is not a millennia at all and the cold reception he gives to my male friends ehn,…. wicked. But this time, it was different and I was amazed,. While he was about to leave, I allowed him steal a kiss, well, you can’t help a sister that is crushing on a fine Bobo. After that day, we became friends and best friends, our relationship became stronger and we decided to heat things up.
    Haa, my MODEL, full of surprises, always dropping gifts at the entrance of the door without announcing his presence, Oh!!! Loving the right person at the right time can never be wrong. I bless the day I met him. He’s my prayer partner. NEVER will a day pass, without our morning devotion and night prayers. He’s understanding, intelligent, caring, loving, calm and I can go on and on……we do dinner together sometimes after work and a MUST during weekends. We love being around each other, we talk about politics a lot and every other thing, but mostly politics. After a few months, he was transferred out of Lagos, ? I remembered that faithful day, he asked that we see after work and he sounded not too happy. I became curious and unstable, anticipating for evening. On arrival, he lifted me, as usual, pulled out a seat for me and told me about his transfer., I cried like a child, I never wanted a distant relationship but he gave me so much encouragement and hope. Oh yes it was long a distance relationship, and with all the issues it comes with, we pulled through. There were days of misunderstanding but love stood the test of them all

    “He proposed on the 11th of March 2017, @ La Mango’s GRA Ikeja Lagos, it was a planned dinner date with families, friends and few colleagues without my knowledge. He came into town and what was supposed to be a dinner date turned out to be a beautiful night to remember. We all had fun, it was a karaoke night for everyone and there I was, presented with a gift box from the lady I call my mom and to be opened at that spot. I kept wondering what was in it and opening it, I saw a beautiful ZIRCONIA DIAMOND ring staring at me. Behold, my model came out with his knees on the fall, there was so much happiness in the air, he popped the big question and my response in tears was a FAT GIGANTIC YES!!!! as the ring went straight down my left finger, I started crying harder, I didn’t know how else to express my joy and love all wrapped up in one feeling

    Our introduction took place on the 28th May 2017 .
    I’m getting married to my MODEL, HANDSOME, NUMBER ONE and BESTFRIEND. It has been an interesting journey with him and I bless God for our lives.
    Counting down to our traditional wedding dated 2ND DEC 2017 while
    Our white wedding has been scheduled to hold on the 10th of February, 2018.

After almost a year of dating my Mr amazing,on march 20th,2016 I was on call at lagos island maternity hospital and bae calls that he is lag,and would stop by to check me. Surprisingly two of my doctor friends showed up at the hospiral,but as one was on call the day before I thought it was fine. Then bae called he was around and I should come meet him at freedom park which is just a stone throw. I changed out of my scrubs,asked for a few minutes break and strolled down,of course with my friends who insisted they wanted to say hi. When I got there,e greeted me casually,we went to get drinks for everyone. After a while of gisting and catching up,something caught my attention from.the corner of my eyes. I looked up and saw my other friends and his that e brought to lagos with him. That’s when I knew,by the time I turned,e was on.one knee asking me to be his wife. Of course I said yes and here we are,counting down to forever.

    My love story is pretty interesting and a little funny. So I attended a wedding sometime in March, 2017 and saw this young man in white shirt, blue jeans and a pair of black shoes. I really like shoes and so it drew my attention. Another friend introduced us (meanwhile, he has always being in my circle of friends but we had no direct contact until the wedding) and he, my now fiancee said he’ll get my number later that day. I tried to escape but he found me and got my number. He did not call until after one week and when he did, we spoke for over 2 hours on the phone about everything from serious to random. We met again after about 3 weeks and he said to me he wanted a relationship that would lead to marriage. I bluntly told him I did not have such thoughts as I was not ready to pray about any guy but I did. We talked everyday about everything and so, on the 31st of March, I said yes after much thought and discussions. About a month after that, we spoke about her pasts and regrets. This put a hold on the relationship as we needed forgiving and wanted to be sure if we would be able to move past the past. We sat a few days after that serious conversation and decided to fight for our love and our future together.
    In July 2017, we both attended a fellowship and just after the meeting, he stood up and said “so, I met this young lady some months ago and she has revolutionized my life”. He knelt on one knee and then another and half prostrated to ask for my hand in marriage and I said yes. Now we are getting married on the 23rd and 25th of November, 2017.

    My family members had just left and I was now ready to start hosting friends. The entire campus was full of life and my lodge wasn’t left out. It was my graduation day 3rd march, 2010
    As I stepped into my crowded room to attend to my friends, I noticed this beautiful young girl seated quietly all by herself. She had accompanied a friend of mine to the party. My friend introduced her, and something about SANDRA struck me even more. We talked a bit that night and she left.
    In 2011, I met Sandra again at a gathering in Lagos and there we exchanged numbers. I started with calls. I would call her just to check up on her but she didn’t seem interested in having long conversations with me. However, I kept on calling as that was the only way I could get close since she was far away in Owerri and rejected my offer to pay her a visit in school. Apparently, she knew my intentions already.
    Long story short, Sandra finally agreed to go out on a date with me in August, 2015 – that didn’t even make things easier. I got to tell her my intentions – more like stating the obvious- and how serious I was. We officially started dating in October 1st 2015 and she had to leave for NYSC the next month. We kept in touch, this time via every medium possible. I always knew she was the one and just needed time to make lines fall in place. Next stop, marriage proposal…
    Easter break was around the corner and I needed something or someone to keep her in Calabar – the perfect location for my line of action. I finally succeeded in convincing her not to come visit me in Lagos as I wanted to spend Easter somewhere different (Calabar). I touched down Calabar and took my lady out later that evening to see a movie at marina resort – That was the longest movie I had ever watched- I used the rest room like kilode. The movie no even gree finish.
    The movie finally ended and here came the moment. I don’t know if the word was ‘nervous’ or “anxiety”, either ways I had one mission in Calabar and it had to happen that night. So we took a walk closer to the water, and I took her hands, looked her in the eyes and told her how much I loved and cherished her. At that moment, I went down on my knees and asked the ultimate question…. The look in her eyes were epic…
    October 28th 2017 is the date and I can’t wait!
